When GESTRA was founded in 1902 by Gustav F. Gerdts, the industrial age had just begun. The goals of the company were clearly defined:

Rationalize steam and energy management, increase operational reliability, and achieve the efficient discharge of condensate. By pursuing these objectives with the same vigour up to the present day, the firm has established itself as one of the world’s leading suppliers of steam and condensate technology.

The GESTRA product range includes steam traps, steam trap testing units, non-return valves, swing check valves, control valves, continuous blowdown and intermittent blowdown valves, and oil detectors. In providing effective level control, TDS control and temperature monitoring, our components ensure the safe operation of pressurized hot-water and steam plants, and also prevent production outages.

As a “one-stop shop”, we offer complex solutions for steam and condensate systems: specialized equipment and vessels for heat recovery that are fitted with premium-grade industrial valves and steam traps and augmented by modern control systems. Thanks to the reduction in energy costs, these investments often pay off within only a few months.

With our technological innovations for non-return valves, continuous blowdown and intermittent blowdown valves as well as for boiler equipment or boiler monitoring systems, we not only set technical milestones regularly but also make it possible for our customers to realize new potentials in saving energy – thus making an important contribution to environmental protection.

Whether the call is for steam traps, oil detectors, non-return valves, continuous blowdown valves, boiler monitoring or boiler equipment, all our products are recognized the world over for their highest standards of quality and durability. With oil and turbidity detectors, steam traps as well as intermittent blowdown valves and level control systems from GESTRA, you are making the right choice.

We will be pleased to provide you with further information on continuous blowdown valves, intermittent blowdown valves, non-return valves, control valves, steam traps, oil detectors and many more products. Our engineers are available to give you comprehensive advice, so that you always receive the right non-return valve, continuous blowdown valve, intermittent blowdown valve or control valve to fit your needs.
